Score 8 out of 10
- Imaging and laboratory results were found in Allscripts Professional EHR.
- Allscripts Professional EHR also provided emergency room history and physicals created by the emergency room physician.
- Allscripts Professional EHR also provided a conduit to discuss review results with hospital nurse case managers.
- Allscripts could use improvement with stability. Once in awhile, the software would freeze upon loading images saved from radiology or lab reports. It frequently had trouble with login credentials.
- Improve the clarity of scanned images in patient's EHR.
- Conversability with other platforms, like Cerner, Epic, and McKesson.
- Improve the way InterQual loads review platform as well as emailing hospital case manager feature.

Allscripts is, honestly, the only EHR system that works. The credentialing problem I mentioned earlier truly IS infrequent, and not a deal breaker.

Charting, orders, and pharmaceutical orders are well suited. Not sure where it would not be effective.

Score 1 out of 10
- Ability to document an encounter with detail.
- Inter-office communications through the Inbox.
- Patient alerts and notifications are easy to view.
- Documenting an encounter is fairly bulky and does not flow well.
- The facesheet is cluttered and should be adjusted to allow the provider/staff to focus on recent information and expand on others if necessary.
- Updates always caused issues and customer support is outsourced through another country which made problem resolution a pain.

I have worked at practices both small and large utilizing Allscripts and generally received the same feedback. Reporting on the data is relatively easy, but documentation in the charts is quite cumbersome and support for the product is significantly less than stellar. Providers who prefer to see a large amount of patient data at once glance may prefer Allscripts to another solution.

Some of the key questions include functionality of the EHR in today's electronic marketplace. Also customer support ratings are important due to many ongoing difficulties previously experienced with older EHRs. Allscripts is well suited to the outpatient setting where many preformed templates provide a comprehensive overview of patients. Additionally, Allscripts' link with the imaging portal PACS is second to none.
- Intuitive with documenting office visits
- Easy to navigate around the screens when researching patient information
- Able to customize lots of things throughout the program to work with requested workflows
- Documenting lab or imaging results are clunky. Without an interface, we scan in labs and imaging. There is a small, unobvious place to make a note in response to the results but then another patient message needs to be sent to the nursing staff explaining these results again with instructions on what to tell the patient.
- You cannot build a chart the day before or print out any paperwork (i.e. consents for procedures) until the day of the appointment or it gets dated for the date you opened the chart, not the actual date of encounter
- While there are so many things you can customize, it gets burdensome at times. You really need to have a superuser on staff to remember how everything gets customized. The customization is not intuitive.

Allscripts' multitude of choices cover a vast amount of options in order to customize to a general family practice or even a specialty practice. However, there are some specialties, such as opthamology, for which Allscripts has not created templates.
